Nvidia GTX 1080 event reportedly taking place this Friday


While EA will be using this Friday to hold the public announcement of Battlefield 5, Nvidia will be holding a more secretive event. Last week, we heard that Nvidia was reportedly planning an ‘Editor’s Day’ for this week, at which the company would show off its GTX 980 and GTX 970 replacements to the press and now it looks like that event will be taking place on the 6th of May.

While EA’s Battlefield event is rumoured to be taking place on the same day as EA’s Battlefield announcement, there is no definitive link between the two events.

According to a report from VRWorld, this end of week event will see the paper launch of the GP104 Pascal GPU, which will be used on the GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and perhaps even a GTX 1060 Ti, which we heard whispers about over the weekend.

We don’t have an exact date for the public reveal of these new GPUs from Nvidia but it is estimated to happen before the end of May. Then, retail availability will follow on a bit later.

KitGuru Says: Nvidia’s new Pascal GPUs are reportedly set to arrive pretty soon. Are any of you planning on upgrading? Even if you don’t make the jump to the latest generation, the release of new cards will likely bring price drops on the current Maxwell line-up.

170 Team Fortress 2 pro players banned after VAC update

 

Team Fortress 2 should now be a fairer place to play, whether competitively or just for fun, as Valve’s latest update to its Valve-Anti-Cheat (VAC) defence system has been detecting users of the LMAOBOX software all weekend. It’s led to many players being banned from the game, including almost 170 professional players from the UGC league.

LMAOBOX is a service you can download for a fee (after a free trial) to make you much harder to beat in Team Fortress 2. It opens up options like wall-hacking, automatic aiming, auto-headshots, removing weapon recall and many more little tweaks to help you win.

Of course you always ran the risk of being banned by running such software, but one of LMAOBOX’s other big features was that it was undetectable by VAC. At least until now. As Valve rolled out the latest update to VAC over the weekend, it picked up many, many players. The most surprising though is the inclusion of so many professional players, who may well have used LMAOBOX cheats as part of sanctioned UGC games.

A full list of them was released to the public, showing that players from all over the world have been caught up in this latest swing of the ban hammer.

In the wake of the news, it was initially thought that the LMAOBOX creator had hung up their hacking gloves, with a post on a particular forum claiming to be them, stating as such. However that has since been repudiated, with the unnamed creator stating that they would update the cheating software soon to make it difficult to detect once again (thanks PCGamer).

KitGuru Says: Do you know anyone who was caught up in this ban wave? Will this make you more likely to play TF2 competitively again?
